TRACES SPRING 2016 - Page 17

Lie after lie after lie,

But why?

Why make me lose the little trust I have in humanity?

Why do you do this to me?

No one deserves this.

I trusted you,

All of you.

And yet every single one of you has lied to me,

My so called "friends".

Now I hardly trust anyone,

All because of you,

Because you had to lie.

You were two faced.

The face you showed me,

I trusted.

The face you showed others,

Talked bad about me.

Knives go through my back,

Puncturing my heart.

It hurts so much.

I want to forgive you,

I don't think I can.

Once trust is gone,

What's the point?

I tried to give you the best of me,

I guess it wasn't enough.

I gave you friendship,

In return I was fed lies.

Pants On Fire

As I take a step back and look,

Should I have done things differently?

Should I have not taken things so seriously?

Not letting the words sink in so deep,

Yes, it hurts so bad.

It’s like I am slowly dying,

from the pain you pushed inside of me.

I want to forgive you,

But I hate you.

I hate you. but I still care.

You caused me so much damage, pain, and sorrow.

I would be crazy to let you back in.

As I take a step back and look,

I realise that to you, I was, only a joke.

False promises, alter egos, fake smiles,

It’s like I never mattered.

As I take a step back and look, I see that it’s your loss, not mine.
